ANNIE MACDONELL: THE LEVELLERS
MAY 4 – JUNE 18, 2017

The Levellers extends Annie MacDonell’s ongoing research and exploration of acts of political resistance, with a focus on gestures of refusal/withdrawal and instances in which the body is used as a site of political action. To level is to make even, to redress an imbalance. The gestures that MacDonell is fascinated by are illustrative of the strange and amorphous effect that going limp has on the balance of power between the individual and the apparatus of the state.

Annie MacDonell Artist Talk: Saturday, May 13, 1 PM

Join us for a double-bill artist talk with Annie MacDonell speaking about her research and exhibition, followed by Vivek Shraya who will discuss her photo essay project and multi-disciplinary art practice.


VIVEK SHRAYA: TRISHA
MAY 4 – JUNE 18, 2017

Trisha is a photo essay from Toronto-based multidisciplinary artist, musician and writer Vivek Shraya. Shraya recreates the scenes from vintage photographs of her mother as a way of both asserting connection and discovering difference between their experiences of femininity.

Vivek Shraya Artist Talk: Saturday, May 13, 1 PM

Double-bill artist talk with Annie MacDonell!

The XIT-RM is a project space showcasing emerging artists in the Mississauga, GTA and 905 regions made possible with the generous support of the RBC Foundation.
